From the Grant side I drove almost all the way to the gate by Duck lake. Before the switchbacks the snow was over a foot deep with tire tracks that had pushed all the way through the snow when it was warm and slushy. When I got there after the weekend the snow/slush had frozen and I drove in the tracks all the way up without a problem. I was in a 4x4 pick-up with regular snow tires, nothing special. I did pass an allwheel drive car that didn‘t have enough clearance, they turned around at the ruts. I didn‘t go past the last snow drift before the parking area/gate, probably could have made it but didn‘t want to shovel so I just skied the last 100 yards.
